In May 2022, 79 students sat for 132 AP exams with 83% earning a score of 3 or higher on a 5 point scale, making them eligible to receive college credit, upper-level placement, or both. The average score of all tests taken by Dunham students was 3.6.

“These scores send a strong message to college admissions officers that our students are well prepared for success in their undergraduate programs,” said Upper School Director Amanda McIlwain. “Our students’ strong performances on these AP exams reflects the quality of our teaching and the growth of our AP program.

Created by the College Board in 1955, the AP program is recognized far and wide as a standard of excellence in education. The Dunham School currently offers 21 AP courses for students who are ready to tackle the challenge of college-level work.
